***THE OLD STABLES - THREE BEDROOM BARN CONVERSION***
An opportunity has arisen to join an established rural housing cooperative in a quiet and beautiful part of the Derbyshire Dales. Earth Heart Housing Cooperative, established in 1997, consists of 8 privately owned grade II listed homes on the edge of Atlow village near Ashbourne. The Coop is set within 21 acres of organically certified land it owns which is managed primarily to promote nature conservation and biodiversity. Residents at Earth Heart become members and directors of the Coop with shared responsibility for managing the land, outbuildings and facilities that it owns.
The shared land includes a 13 acre parkland style pasture bordering the Henmore Brook, two other smaller pastures, 5 acres semi-ancient woodland, a productive orchard, fruit trees and a large vegetable garden. There is a children?s play area, willow maze, stream, tree circle and even a scheduled Ancient Monument (Atlow Moat). Other shared facilities include a communal wood pellet boiler and a reed bed sewage system. There are also shared outbuildings for social events, community meetings, workshop space and storage.
The Old Stables is located in a courtyard of stone farm buildings originally built in 1863 and converted in 2003, retaining many period features. The property is fully double glazed and well insulated and enjoys beautiful views overlooking the Henmore valley.
The best way to fully appreciate this property and find out about the community is to arrange a viewing appointment. You can do this by contacting Lewis Adam Estate Agents on 01332 558189.
